Save the dates 21-23 May and 28-31 May (Memorial Day Weekend) and visit Cold Spring in beautiful Hudson Valley, where I will be exhibiting paintings at 44MAIN. The exhibition
Fluid State includes paintings on wood panel, canvas and aluminum ranging in size from 8 x 8in to 48 x 72in. There will also be works on paper. I will be present to talk about my work and answer questions. (Required social distancing rules will be adhered to). All paintings will be available for purchase and commissions considered.

Cold Spring in Putnam County, NY is conveniently located 83 minutes north of Manhattan along the picturesque Hudson River (not to be confused with Cold Spring Harbor in Long Island). Take a Metro North train from Grand Central Station. Trains run 45 minutes past each hour, every hour. The gallery is located a short walk up Main Street from Cold Spring train Station, on the left hand side of the street.

We are all in a fluid state of being. We have to move and adapt to changing circumstances, including those the pandemic has brought about. Keeping an open mind to change is essential for our emotional wellbeing. Likewise, a fluid state of mind is necessary for Rahim as she explores themes and techniques that flow through her series of works. The exhibition Fluid State reveals her latest body of work. ‘I make rhythmic sense of my sometimes chaotic and visually stimulating environment and life. Textures and shapes found in the city, peeling paint on an old door, the colors of the ocean, patterns on rugged rocks, satellite images of the earth and microscopic anatomy are typical of my inspirations. Application and subtraction of layers of paint where these elements flicker in and out of visibility, build up with time, movement, music and emotion and settle down into my own visual narrative.’ A version of reality results, stimulating the viewer’s imagination and allowing for their participation in the creative process.
